So what's up with tonight?
There'll be some great tunes (and food & drink) in Waterfront Park at The Bite of Oregon. It's open from 11-11 and there's music on two stages througout the day. And it's all local with some nicely creative programming - here's the schedule for the Garden Stage. This evening it's a fine American Roots lineup with sets by James Faretheewell, Garett Brennan, Lex Browning and Lewi Longmire and their bands. Check it out!
In addition to the two shows I mentioned yesterday - James Low's happy hour show at the Laurelthirst and the Don of Division Street CD release show at the Secret Society Ballroom (btw, excellent piece in today's A&E on this show by Barbara Mitchell if you want to know more) - here's a few other compelling choices for this evening:
Trio Subtonic celebrates the release of their new recording with a gig at Jimmy Mak's (story here). The all-women sax band, The Quadraphonnes, opens. Anticipate a great evening . . . 8 pm, $10
National Flower and The Dimes bring their solid tunefullness to Mississippi Studios tonight. The Woolwines, featuring the lovely voice and violin of Annalisa Tornfelt opens. Expect an evening of solid and sunny folk pop from this triple bill . . . 9 pm, $8
And over at Duff's Garage, the DK-4, featuring DK Stewart on keys, Peter Dammann on guitar and the Soul Survivor Horns, will be throwin' down a heavy dose of swinging blues and boogie. Time to dance . . . 9:30 pm, $8
With all these choices, you really gonna stay home?
